I Survived My First Facebook Live!

So, I decided to kick fear in the butt and do a Facebook Live on my business page yesterday. I wanted to do a video to expand on the post I did on Tuesday, 3 Reasons You are Working too Much.

It wasn’t perfect, for sure. I flipped my hair a lot, a spoke too fast at times, and I used “ummm” way too many times. But, that’s okay. I am letting go of the need to have everything perfect. It was good for my first time and I offered some great times, if I say so myself!

I won’t be sharing the Facebook Lives here on the blog very often, but since this was my first one, I thought it might be good to share. I want you to see that it is okay to put yourself out there, even when it is scary!

Therefore, here is the replay: (If you have trouble with the video below, here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/caroldvirtualadministrativespecialist/?modal=admin_todo_tour

The Lost Art of Letter-writing

Oh, my. I came across this TED video yesterday and as soon as I watched it, I knew I had to share it with you.

This short video made my cry. You see, in this video, Lakshmi Pratury talks about the letters her father for her before he passed away. Besides my compassion for her loss, her words touched me because they brought back some memories.

As someone who loves to write (no surprise there!), I used to write a lot of letters. Of course, those were the days before email, instant messages, and Twitter. In particular, I would write to one of my cousins almost weekly and I looked forward to her response. Then, when I spent time discerning a religious vocation (that may be a surprise to you!), I wrote my parents and family once a month and my friends a little less frequently. I tell you, I cherished the letters I received from my mom! They somehow got lost over the years, but I wish so much that I still had them. (Even today, I still insist on sending physical Christmas cards!)

This video reminds me that the need for the physical is important. Emails and the digital world is great (and I will never give them up), but there is something special getting a letter that someone took the time to write, fold and send through the snail mail. It sure beats bills and adverts!

Lakshmi Pratury wants to start an old fashioned letter-writing revolution. She plans to write for her son, and I think it is a great idea. So, I’m in. How about you? You in?
